February 2018 marks the publication of two important philosophical texts by Professor Keith Ansell-Pearson, both published by Bloomsbury Academic.
‘Bergson: Thinking Beyond the Human Condition’ is described by the publishers as an elegant overview, bringing Bergson to a new generation of readers. ‘Ansell-Pearson contends that there is a Bergsonian revolution, an upheaval in philosophy comparable in significance to those that we are more familiar with, from Kant to Nietzsche and Heidegger, which make up our intellectual modernity’.
‘Nietzsche’s Search for Philosophy: On the Middle Writings’: PDF eBook. The publishers observe that ‘this study explores key aspects of Nietzsche’s philosophical activity in his middle writings, including his conceptions of philosophy, his commitment to various enlightenments, his critique of fanaticism, his search for the heroic-idyllic, his philosophy of modesty and his conception of ethics, and his search for joy and happiness. The book will appeal to readers across philosophy and the humanities, especially to those with an interest in Nietzsche and anyone who has a concern with the fate of philosophy in the modern world’.
New AHRC Project: 'Time: Between Metaphysics and Psychology'
From January 2017, Warwick will be hosting a new interdisciplinary research project Time: Between Metaphysics and Psychology, funded by an award from the Arts and Humanities Research Council. The aim of the project is to bring debates about the metaphysics of time, which often invoke claims about our experience of time, into contact with actual research in psychology on the origins and nature of our everyday understanding of time. The three-year project, which will be lead by Christoph Hoerl (Philosophy, Warwick) and Teresa McCormack (Psychology, Belfast), will involve two 2-year postdocs (one in philosophy, one in psychology), a series of workshops and public engagement activities, as well as collaborations with a range of performing arts groups.
